Tamron Lenses & Tamron G2 Lenses

Tamron G2 Lenses | Tamron Lens For Canon | Tamron Lenses For Nikon | Tamron Lenses for Sony

It is November 2017. Tamron is slowly making a come back with a new range of lenses that they call the Tamron G2 Lens Range. They needed to do something dramatic to claw back some market share from Sigma who in recent times (a year or two) have smashed Tamron with the Sigma Art series lenses. The new Tamron G2 lenses are far better than the odd clunkers (although I can hear Tamron fans boo-ing me) that Tamron produced before.

The new Tamron G2 lenses have a slick new look (copied? from Sigma) but it is of course the guts of the lens that makes it good not the outfit. There is little doubt that price has a lot to do with the decision making process of a lens buyer as well.

For the time being I am going to focus on the newer G2 lenses but of course we also offer non G2 Tamron lenses. Ok so the first Tamron G2 lens that comes to mind is the Tamron 24-70mm G2 VC Lens. Tamron is offering huge value for your money with advancements that they have finally brought to the market (from 5 years of learning from prior models) over the price and specifications of the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and Nikon's 24-70mm f2.8 lenses. Is the Tamron 24-70mm G2 as good as the Canon and Nikon offerings? No it is not but it is in most cases about half the price and for most of us we can live with a short-coming or two if we know firstly what that short-coming is and how to get around it or simply not put the Tamron 24-70mm G2 to it's maximum by saying backing off the F stop to f4 instead of f2.8.

I have grown to really like Dustin Abbott's reviews and after watching the following review all the way through I am ready to accept that Tamron is back and back with a vengeance.

The next Video also reviews the Tamron 24-70mm G2 Lens by a Canon photographer that is accustomed to using the Canon 24-70mm f2.8, He has some interesting points for you to consider before you buy the Tamron 24-70mm lens.

Next we move on to Tamron's 70-200mm f2.8 G2 VC Lens. The build quality of the newer Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 G2 Lens is better than the prior models and in my opinion they are aesthetically beautiful, giving credence to the care the engineers have taken in it's construction. Christopher Frost has put together the following review.

So how much better is the Generation 2 (G2) lens? I like how this review shows you the results side by side in a real life shooting situation.

Next on the Tamron G2 side-show is the ultra telephoto, Tamron 150-600mm G2 VC Lens.

Ok so I am stuck on Dustin Abbotts reviews, he is just so damn logical. Dustin believes that Tamron has vastly improved the image quality that you can expect from Tamrons G2 version of the Tamron 150-600mm VC Lens.

And now Part 2 of the Tamron 150-600mm G2 lens review.

We move away now from the Tamron G2 lens range and enter the HLD range. So enter the Tamron 18-400mm Lens. Now I am not a fan of super zooms and this 18-400mm is the Zoomiest of them all. This lens is always going to appeal to the travel photographer in terms of focal range but in my honest opinion, it is not going to appeal to the serious amateur or pro shooter, not because the focal range is lacking but because the image quality is going to be lacking. On the other hand Dan Watson in his video review seems to disagree. I can see his point for the beginner shooter but nahhhh I think you would be better off buying say the Nikon 18-300mm, loss a bit of zoom range but get a better overall image quality. Let's see now what Dan has to say so that you can draw your own conclusions.

Moving on from Tamron's 18-400mm is the slighly older but in my opinion better lens in terms of optics and image quality, Tamron's 16-300mm VC Lens (for both Canon and Nikon bodies.) Let's check out a video review.

Tamron then went completely mad by announcing the super wide 15-30mm f2.8 (so fast aperture) with the added bonus of VC (Vibration Control for image stability.

Here are some of our Tamron Lens Video Reviews. You will find them on each of the Tamron lens product pages as well.

For the sake of completeness and keeping ourselves honest, we now present Tamron lens reviews on youtube by independent reviewers.
